Sony UCX-S - 1985 - US
An early 80s Sony Type II. Very attractive foil wrapper and old school solid shell, which is a classic design.
Doesn't need much bias tweaking, will get the most out of most decks. Has great bass response for a Type II. In fact, this is a truly fantastic cassette, the tape is very brown for a Type 2, which could account for it's great bass response.
Note: One of these tapes was meant specifically for the German market. One single tape available.
Note: These may or may not have the Canadian Maple leaf on them. Please ask before ordering. Thank you.
